He starred in the horror series Bedlam in 2011 and also played a nightclub rep in The Inbetweeners Movie (2011). His career breakthrough came in 2015 when he played the character of Tobias 'Four' Eaton in the film adaptation of the Divergent books.

"I know I often get a job because of how I look. I hope that I keep the job because of how I act."

"I've got two brothers and two sisters, so there's five of us and we're all very close, which is cool."

"I don't think I believe in ghosts, per se. But, my nearest experience was when I went on a weekend away and was in a bar in England, years ago, with an ex-girlfriend. I heard this scratching. I was about to go to bed and I was thinking, 'It's an old ghost.' I could hear this noise, but I couldn't work out where it was coming from."


He is of one-quarter Greek descent, with the rest of his ancestry being English and Scottish.

He has worked as a bartender, lifeguard, and for the National Health Service (NHS).

He was the lead singer of multiple bands, including, Makora and Shere Khan.
